nyree's blessing dress

i have been a very lucky aunt this year!
i have gotten 2 brand new nieces and a nephew.
so far i have 3 nieces total.

i have made blessing dresses for all of them!


this one i just finished last week.
it is for my newest niece Nyree.



it is made out of a very light cream silk taffeta.
it has tulle coming out of the bottom...



ruffles around the neck...



and antique looking diamond buttons down the back.




i made this matching headband...


and sewed some bows on some tiny socks.


i have decided that baby dresses are my favorite thing to make.


sweet  Nyree I know you will look so beautiful in your dress.


now it's time to start thinking of a dress design for my little darlin' that is due in less than 4 weeks!

ahhh!

Hi there! The dress you made is GORGEOUS! Any chance you'd consider selling one to me? It's SO beautiful! I know, maybe a little weird to ask that, but if that's something you might be willing to do, email me at libbijones@gmail.com.
Thanks!
